Qs: Request for Participation for Innateness Study

Editor for this issue: Elyssa Winzeler <elyssalinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

Dear colleagues,

Paul Griffiths (Sydney), Joshua Knobe (Yale), Stefan Linquist (Guelph),
Edouard Machery (Pittsburgh), Richard Samuels (OSU), and Karola Stotz
(Sydney) are collecting data about scientists' use of the notion of
innateness in several disciplines. We are particularly interested in how
linguists use this notion.

We would like to invite you to take part to a short web study (at most 10
minutes). You will be asked to read a few vignettes and to judge whether
some traits are innate. You will also be asked to fill out a brief
demographic questionnaire.

This survey is entirely anonymous, and the study has be approved by Guelph
IRB, OSU IRB, Pittsburgh IRB, Sydney IRB, and Yale IRB.

To participate to this study, follow the following link:

We would also appreciate if you could forward this e-mail to your
colleagues and graduate students!

Many thanks for your help!!

Edouard Machery
